Geldeheim Castle
by Caleb F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/28/2015 19:21:35

Simply not worth it. While the maps and detail are nice, the quality and quantity in no way justify the price tag. There is nothing in this set that exceeds the value of some of the $10 barn castles. This is a blatant and ridiculously over the top rip off. This is also the last barn product I will purchase until the folks at Columbia get a grip and don't charge double to triple what their product is worth

HarnMaster Magic
by Daniel K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/23/2015 07:15:57

This ain't you typical RPG magic system. The story elements of Harn's Shek-Pvar are absorbed into the game mechanics with little effort. Advancement is based on your mastery level, your imagination in developing new spells, and willingness to part with esoteric items.


I love the collaboration between GM and player to develop new spells. To learn new existing spell depends on your mastery level and potency of the spell.


The price in game mechanics to pay for casting is not arduous but must be taken into account, especially in combat. The more you cast the more it will fatigue you and the great the penalties on all your skills and abilities. The price in storyline and setting cannon is a far higher cost. To be burned at the stake fr witchcraft is a high price indeed.


If you are looking for something to make the player think about the consequences of esoteric power, give HarnMaster and it's magic system a shot.

Patrel: Tribal Gathering Site
by William C. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/22/2015 17:42:27

Let me start by saying that I love Harn and especially love Chybisa and all things associated with it's environs.


Patrel: Tribal Gathering Site didn't let me down as a new Hodiri supplement though it did seem to lack one particular detail...


Nicholas Lowson's excellent booklet on Millers which states,


"In 709, Styven of Much, a miller from Chybisa was taken hostage during a raid on a caravan on the Genin Trail. He was bringing a new millstone back from Thay to use in a mill that was being built in Dynain. After destroying the caravan, the Hodiri lined Styven and the few others who had survived up and started to use them as targets. In exchange for his life, Styven pleaded that he could construct a horse-powered mill for the Hodiri. Chuppachak, the Hodiri leader was intrigued, and so Styven and the millstone were taken to Patrel for the annual festival. Styven was given until the end of the festival to build the mill, or he would be roasted alive on the fires of the last night. The mill was built, and the Hodiri were impressed. They hamstrung Styven so that he could not run away, and for the last eleven years he has operated the Patrel mill."


I would have liked to see this information incorporated into the Patrel: Tribal Gathering Site product.

Undead (Morvrin)
by Robert B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 09/19/2015 04:21:54

This article on Morvrin is a must for any GM playing in the western part of Hârn. Although not very long it details the undead underlings and give good insights not mentioned before in the rules. Still there is a lot of room for any GM to expand on this source. Get it to complete your beastiary and to harras your players, these guys and gals are no picnic.

Gardiren Castle
by Noel M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/07/2015 21:47:03

FIRST - be sure you do not purchase Gardiren #10 The Jug Inn, chances are good you read the note long before you read this review. It was frustrating to purchase both together only to discover that it was included in this module; no did not read the description - did not feel I needed to because I was adding this to my collection of Kaldor Kingdom material. Oh well CAVEAT EMPTOR. Of all the products I have purchased over the last 30 years for Role Playing Games Harn/Columbia products are some of the best. Drivethrue RPG has made this wonderful because I can print one sided pages to make notes for my campaigns involving these modules.

Olokand Castle
by Noel M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/07/2015 21:41:09

Received a lot more than I had hoped for, for a higher fantasy setting the Ona-Setrum would be a great starting place for an extensive Dungeon Crawl. Harn settings are wonderful (as intended) for non-Harn RPGs and this is just another example.

HarnManor
by Noel M. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/07/2015 21:36:01

Are you a GM? Do you need to understand better the premise behind Medieval Manors? This will help to paint a very wonderful image and create some realism as well as help you plan out a Manor. Granted it is originally set up for Harn, but the principles and information are useful for a feudal based fantasy gaming system. If you have acquired other Harn products or "Fanon" that has stats for Manors this book will help interpret the information given.

Tavern Games
by Bradley F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/03/2014 14:18:21

It is really difficult to rate a free document, because honestly if you don't like all you wasted is a bit of your time. Columbia Game's Tavern Games document is, however, pretty good. It details, as far as I can tell, real world games and gives most of them a lore-appropriate name. It is well written and doesn't hurt to download as a small supplement for your players to pass time if you need to set things up.

Atlas Map J5
by Bradley F. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 05/03/2014 14:03:04

This is the first, but definitely not the last, map I have bought. They are very high quality and very detailed, and you can use the measurement tool in adobe reader to measure the mileage between locales (if you are a sucker for precision, like I am). You can certainly zoom in as much as you like because, if I am not mistaken, it is a vector drawing, like something typically done in Adobe Illustrator. In other words, the boundaries, lines, etc. resize as you zoom in to keep everything crisp and smooth (as opposed to raster or pixel images which get blurry as you zoom).


IN SUMMATION; it's a great map to have and use to plan things out or figure distances on the fly, provided you use a computer or something while you game.

Shiran's Pamesani Arena Map
by Mark S. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/29/2014 22:49:56

A free map of a gladiator arena. Anyone can draw (or trace) a circle.


Not everyone can imagine the animal and gladiator cells below and beside the arena.


Five stars for a good game value.

HarnMaster Magic
by Mattias L. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/24/2014 03:11:00

I love the Hârnmaster world setting. The rules aren't the easiest ones but supports the setting fine. Hârnmaster Shek-Pvar (Magic) is a coherent rule system for spells and magic items. A lot of focus is on players designing their own spells and the existing ones serve more as examples than a finished "grimoire". If you like the magic of Tolkien or GRR Martin, you will enjoy this. If you're more a boardgame/class level/d&d player this might not be what you're looking for. Strongly recommended, if not only for the new interesting take on magic and spells.

City of Shiran E14: Bull Ring Tavern
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 03/21/2014 10:47:16

This nice little write-up describes a tavern in the City of Shiran. As always, it is embedded beautifully into the setting, with little details that bring it to life and a few adventure hooks thrown in.


This is no ordinary tavern. It lurks unmarked in the cellars of a warehouse, but is popular with local working folk and with members of the nobility who have a taste for low-life and blood sports for the Bull Ring boasts a combat arena in which dogs, rats, cocks, badgers and men fight. Fighters can make good money, if they survive victorious, and of course betting on the outcome thrives.


The normal residents of the building sound decidely unpleasant types, indeed the entire tavern is ripe for clearing out by decent and upstanding citizens. If your party, however, has more disreputable tastes they may find it a suitable watering hole and a place to make useful contacts.


There is a page of descriptive material about the tavern and what transpires there, floorplans and room descriptions and four hooks to get the party involved with the place.

City of Cherafir D5: Clothier
by Megan R. [Featured Reviewer] Date Added: 03/18/2014 07:54:24

You'd never think there was so much to write about a garment shop, but this is filled with little snippets that make this small but prosperous establishment fair spring to life!


This is a very speciast place, an ecclesiastical robe-maker's shop - a broad minded one, they cater to several faiths - providing the very best in vestments and other apparel to the well-heeled religious. Fine embroidery, gold thread, silks in delicate and rare shades, it's all here. Perhaps there's the odd hidden secret as well.


Crammed into a scant two pages are a wealth of background detail, a full plan and description of the premises and several adventure ideas involving the shop and its inhabitants.


It is this level of detail that makes a place really come to life, a sheer delight to have even if your characters walk straight by without a second glance... and if they don't, why you have every last detail at your fingertips, whether that high-level cleric in the party wants some ceremonial garb or if they want to get involved in any of the adventures described, or one of your own.

Larani: Order of the Checkered Shield
by Daniel K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/26/2013 06:36:38

This supplement, for me, has been long anticipated. The fluff gives a great depth to Western Harn and the political situation there. The overview of life in this military/religious order is helpful without being burdensome. The game mechanic expansion is very balanced to allow the building of PCs or NPCs who are apart of the order.


I can't wait for Lady of Paladins.
